Anna Lau - Became RMHC Volunteer since 2002
When I first heard about the Ronald McDonald House®, I had absolutely no idea of what it is and who it is for. Out of curiosity, I called to enquire their services and request a visit to the House. Since then, I have become its loyal volunteer.

Tao Tao, a seriously burned little boy who was 3 to 4 years old at that time, had touched my heart. Due to his conditions, he was very reluctant to blend in with others and refused to play with other children. After my many rounds of ice-breaking, Tao Tao finally accepted me and opened up himself. My efforts finally paid off. Till now, every moment when I think about the big smile on his face, it gives me the sweetest feelings ever.

At the beginning, I only planned to become the House’s volunteer during my spare time. However, this House of Love has brought meanings and colors to my life and has been the major charity I served in the past few years.

It has been three years since I was first involved in the volunteering work of Ronald McDonald House Charities® Hong Kong (RMHC HK). During this period of time, I had the opportunity to get to know a lot of children suffering serious illnesses and their families. There is a story of hardship and a grueling path behind each and every family that stayed at the House – some of them made me sigh, yet others tugged at my heartstrings and inspired me to be grateful for the wonders of life. Through my experience at RMHC HK, I did not only see the power of family and how it shines in the form of perseverance and compassion at times of difficulty, but was also propelled to embrace such spirit in my daily life. “Dear children, please remember to stay patient during treatment and find time to learn whenever possible to prepare for your return to school. It would be truly amazing to see you in your uniform and school bag soon!” Watching the kids jumping and running around was one of my happiest moments as a volunteer. I wish the children every success in their treatment and a speedy recovery such that they can return home. I will pray for every single child who stayed at the House. God bless.

Wah Wah was diagnosed with gastrointestinal hemangioma of tract when she was 5 months old. When Wah Wah was in the hospital for the first two months, her mom was anxious and worried and her dad could not go to work. The couple had to shuttle between their Tai Po home and the hospital every single day. Wah Wah’s sister, Kwan Kwan was nine years old by then. She felt more like an orphan as her parents’ attention was all on Wah Wah. With the existence of the Ronald McDonald House (RMH), their family life and relationship turned normal and better.

My son Ho Hin was diagnosed with medulloblastoma when he wasn't even one year old. I needed to start a long journey of treatment with him on my own because at that time my husband was working in the Mainland. Thankfully a social worker concerned our case and referred us to move into the Ronald McDonald Charities House®. Afterwards, my son suffered from another illness, and we moved into the House again.

Life is full of adversity. My two lovely daughters suffered from Thalassemia, which made me live in hardship for ten years in order to take care of them. Fortunately, we got chances to accommodate at the Ronald McDonald House®. It not only helped me take care of my daughters but also giving me a chance to talk to its staff members and volunteers when I was depressed and doing physical exercise to relax. Luckily, the pair eventually recovered.
